2013 Marie Osmond Dolls are now in stock! The only exception is Red Velvet which we recently learned has a 4 week exclusive hold with QVC before shipping to retailers. We are expecting to receive her in late September.

We did receive 12 new styles in stock. Many are very close to being sold out completely. If you pre-ordered, we have sent you an email and a PayPal invoice for your balance due. If you did not receive this, please check your in-box and spam folder and feel free to drop us a line. We have adjusted pricing on our website to reflect the lower of QVC show day price or suggested retail price.

GREAT NEWS! Marie Osmond is having a doll show on August 12th, 2013 and Count Your Beans is one of 7 currently authorized doll dealers who will be carrying the dolls available to retail. We have pre-ordered 13 new dolls and they are now available for pre-order at this link!

Charisma has let us know that dolls should be shipping to retailers to arrive in the middle of August. Marie will be having a show on QVC on Monday, August 12th from 7 am - 9 am PST / 10 am - Noon EST. We have heard there are a couple of additional dolls that will be QVC exclusives but we will have all 13 dolls that are listed above. We have pre-ordered in VERY limited quantities and we highly recommend pre-ordering. This will be the only Marie Osmond doll show on QVC this year.

We truly appreciate your support of our family business! John and Karen are now volunteering full-time with Autism Empowerment, the non-profit we co-founded in June 2011. We are happy to continue to offer new Marie Osmond doll releases to our loyal doll collecting friends as they come out. Please note that due to part-time sales, we have discontinued our Bonus Beans program as of June 1st, 2013. Any outstanding Bonus Beans that have not expired can still be redeemed but we will no longer be issuing new Bonus Beans codes.

Should you be interested in special ordering any of Charisma's other 2013 doll lines such as Adora or Kewpie, please let us know and we may be able to place a special order on your behalf! We will be updating other sections of our website in late July and early August. We also will be listing dolls on eBay and at Amazon.

THANK YOU!

Last Updated 2/10/13 - No New Dolls for 2013 announced yet.

As of 2/10/13, no new Marie Osmond dolls for 2013 have been announced. We were told that they may have new offerings in time for an August 2013 show but to the best of our knowledge, nothing has yet been confirmed and we haven't had the opportunity to order new 2013 dolls.

It has been a real honor to serve Count Your Beans customers for the past 13+ years. Although we will continue to sell the inventory we have in stock and offer new releases if/when they become available, our family's main focus has switched to volunteering / working for Autism Empowerment, a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity that we cofounded in June 2011. Both Karen and John feel that they have been called on a mission with Autism Empowerment. We have two sons on the autism spectrum and our mission is to promote Acceptance, Enrichment, Inspiration and Empowerment within the Autism and Asperger communities worldwide.

We would love your support! Our website is http://www.autismempowerment.org, our Facebook page is: http://www.facebook.com/autismempowerment and Autism Empowerment Radio (we just finished our 50th show on 2/8) is at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/autismempowerment.

We are very excited about the work we are doing locally, regionally and worldwide and hope to raise grant money and community support to continue to make positive change in this world for individuals and families within the Autism and Asperger communities.

Since right now, we're volunteering and trying hard to raise money for Autism Empowerment, we still need to pay personal bills and will continue to clear out inventory (including older Artist Proof, First Production Sample and Low COA # Marie Osmond dolls) as time permits.

We have a lot of inventory of many different lines. The best way to find what we are selling is to regularly check our eBay store for auctions and buy it now opportunities and also to check our Amazon store. We also regularly donate to Autism Empowerment and have a 100% charity account at eBay for Autism Empowerment too.

If you buy or sell at eBay, you can also help support Autism Empowerment with your sales and purchases!

eBay store (Count Your Beans) and at our Amazon Storefront

Autism Empowerment at eBay

At this point in time, we are not re-ordering or adding new inventory of other doll lines (manufactured in 2013), however if Marie Osmond does decide to produce dolls this year and Charisma still offers them to us for resale, we will be happy to take special orders and carry the line.

Thank you as always for your support! Karen, John, Justin and Ryan

We recently learned from Charisma that there will unfortunately be no Marie Osmond dolls show on QVC for either August or September of 2012. At this point there are no new dolls open to retailers to pre-order, however Charisma (and Count Your Beans) is hoping for an October show and October dolls. We are not sure when we'll be notified about this but usually retailers need to order a few months in advance so when we have more details that we've been authorized to share, we'll be happy to let you know!

We appreciate your patience, understanding and support. We know many of you were looking forward to seeing Marie's anniversary show. We are hoping for an October show with phenomenal dolls!  Hopefully there will be so much positive demand from collectors for new dolls that our wish will become reality!

Great news!  We are excited to announce that the new 2012 Kewpie dolls are now in stock!  Check out Owlsome Kewpie, Panda Perfect Kewpie, Froggy Fun Kewpie, Bunny Hop Kewpie and Kat's Meow Kewpie. At just $29.95 apiece, these dolls are both collectible and giftable!

We are still actively taking pre-orders for the new March Marie Osmond dolls. Please note that in order to not carry a lot of excess inventory, we have pre-ordered all the 2012 Marie Osmond dolls conservatively so if you see a doll that you like, especially if it is a low edition size, we highly recommend pre-orders so that you do not miss out.  If we sell out of something in pre-order, we will try to add more but due to low edition sizes, there is no guarantee we will get additional allocation, so please keep this in mind.

We also received 3 candy themed Kewpie dolls back in stock: Candy Apple Kewpie, Lollipop Kewpie and Red Licorice Kewpie.  They're so sweet!

Last Updated 2/22/12 3:00 p.m. PST

Hello Count Your Beans doll friends! Official pictures and descriptions for Marie Osmond show dolls have now been added!  Please note that Charisma is having some problems with their website so the pictures they released to us to show on our website say "Do Not Duplicate" on them.  We were told these pictures are okay for authorized dealers to use at this time. 

As a reminder, Marie Osmond's next shows on QVC have been announced as follows:

West Coast: Sunday, March 18th at 11:00 p.m. and Monday, March 19th at 1:00 p.m. PT

Central Time Zone: Monday, March 19th at 1:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. CT

Eastern Time Zone: Monday, March 19th at 2:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m ET

We're anticipating each show to be an hour each with new dolls on both shows. Therea are a mixture of dolls of different sizes, different series, different price ranges.

Marie Osmond and Charisma Brands did win a DOTY / Doll of the Year Award for the French Fashion Bru Tiny Tot and that doll will be very limited to retailers in the first March show. Allocations for the first shipment are quite low per retailer, so if interested in receiving her in the first run, please pre-order ASAP as we expect to sell out well before the show. She will retail at $49.95.  If you miss our first allocation, we have also re-ordered for Charisma second shipment which currently has an ETA of early July.

Please note that in order to not carry a lot of excess inventory, we have pre-ordered all the 2012 Marie Osmond dolls conservatively so if you see a doll that you like, especially if it is a low edition size, we highly recommend pre-orders so that you do not miss out.  If we sell out of something in pre-order, we will try to add more but due to low edition sizes, there is no guarantee we will get additional allocation, so please keep this in mind. In the August 2011 show, we had five sell-outs that sold out in pre-order with Count Your Beans and Charisma Brands. We definitely want to be able to get you the dolls that bring you smiles! 

We will be price matching QVC so if you pre-order a doll with us and the price drops on show day, we will honor QVC pricing. Depending on the discount, it may be QVC price match including shipping or it may be QVC price with Free shipping.  That will be at our discretion once we know what the show day pricing will be.  Bonus Beans for dolls that are price-matched more than will drop to 25 Bonus Beans each for toddlers and 10 Bonus Beans each for tiny tots.

Last Updated 2/22/12 12:30 a.m.

Hello Count Your Beans doll friends!  We've been getting lots of emails asking when the Marie Osmond doll pictures and descriptions are going to be released by Charisma to retailers so that we may post them online. We spoke with our rep yesterday and she said they were working to have them sent out to retailers by the end of the day (Tuesday). As it was a long holiday weekend and staff was just returning from Toy Fair, please allow a little extra time for the pictures and official descriptions to be released.

We tentatively put up descriptions at 12:30 a.m. PST based on our notes we took at the time we pre-ordered the Marie Osmond new release dolls but please note that this information is subject to change and once we have the official descriptions from Charisma, we will compare for accuracy.

Thanks so much for your patience and support!  Please also read our news below from 2/15/12 for extra details about the upcoming Marie Osmond show.

AB & CD - H -  I - Q -   R - Z

We look forward to being able to add new Marie Osmond March 2012 show dolls soon. Charisma has promised to offically release information about the new dolls including pictures about a month before Marie's next doll shows on QVC.  As the shows are scheduled for the March 18th / March 19th timeframe (depending what coast you live on), we are hoping to be able to post descriptions and pictures in about a week.

Marie Osmond's next shows on QVC have been announced as follows:

There should be a mixture of dolls of different sizes, different series, different price ranges. Unfortunately, we're not allowed to get more specific than that, however we can say that Marie Osmond and Charisma Brands did win a DOTY / Doll of the Year Award for the French Fashion Bru Tiny Tot and that doll WILL be on the show and availalbe at retailers such as Count Your Beans.

Allocations for the first shipment are quite low per retailer, so if interested in receiving her in the first run (there should be another run in the future), please let us know. She will retail at $49.95.

Adora Dolls - We will be bringing in new styles of 2012 Adora Toddler dolls in late February, early March. Please see our Adora Toddler Pages to pre-order new styles. We also have Girl Scout Dolls, Girl Scout Costumes and Nursery Time Babies in stock now. Please email us at countyourbeans@aol.com if interested. We should have them up on our website by March.

Kewpie Dolls - There will be five new dolls for 2012  and we have all on pre-order. From the pictures we've seen (available shortly), they are VERY cute! - Kewpie Bunny Hop - Kewpie Froggy Fun - Kewpie Kat's Meow - Kewpie Owlsome - Kewpie Panda Perfect

Hello Count Your Beans Doll & Bear Friends!

We are in the process of adding pictures of the new Adora Toddler dolls to our website.  This year the suggested retail price on average and raised just slightly from $89.95 to $94.95. This year there are at least 22 new Toddler dolls and you're going to love the cute themes!

There will also be new Marie Osmond dolls that are expected to come out sometime in March. We have not received official word yet from Charisma as to when Marie will next be on QVC but have heard the mid - late March timeframe tossed out previously.  We will likely be hearing about pre-orders soon as Charisma will be at the IDEX and Toy Fair doll shows. (Count Your Beans will not be there as both shows are cross-country and we still have young kiddos in school but we will be working with our Charisma reps to make sure we place our pre-orders.)

Thank you so much for your patience and support!  We look forward to offering you new dolls soon!

Count Your Beans wishes you a very Happy New Year!

There will be new Adora, Kewpie and Marie Osmond dolls in 2012 but we don't have the particulars yet. We should know more later this month!  We believe based on what Marie Osmond said previously that she will be back on QVC sometime in March but do not have a confirmed date at this point.   We look forward to sharing the new collections with you and thank you for your support and patience!

We also recently received Adora Lottie Love Mop Top Bitty Belle, Adora Ramona Royal Mop Top Bitty Belle and Harmony Good Old Summertime Tiny Tot in stock.  There isn't a stock photo yet from Charisma for Harmony GOS Tiny Tot so we took our own!

New shipping update: The authorized dealers' supply of New Marie Osmond August Show Dolls is currently expected to arrive at Charisma around 9/14 and ship to retailers shortly thereafter. Since they ship from Maryland and we're in Washington state, we're currently estimating an arrival time in late-September for all August Show Dolls. The exceptions are the 20th Anniversary Platinum Rose Doll / Book which has a 6 week QVC hold and has an ETA of mid-October and Love Makes The World Go Round which is being reworked at Charisma to change out the music box in each doll from "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling" to "Love Makes The World Go Round". 

Thank you for your patience and support!  As always, we are happy to offer QVC Anniversary Show Price Matching and will adjust your invoices accordingly if you have pre-ordered.

The following dolls are sold out in pre-order at Count Your Beans:  Adora Belle The Roaring 20th - 20th Anniversary Platinum Rose doll with 20th Anniversary Book - 20th Anniversary Kissy My Heart - My Perfect Pal - Treats and Treasures Keepsake - We are taking a waiting list for each doll should we have cancellations. 

Please note that we have been told we will not be able to get a future order of these dolls from Charisma as Charisma has sold out their entire edition of each doll.  If you are on the waitlist, you may wish to try and reserve a doll elsewhere. (We truly love your business but we'd rather have you get your wish list doll than be on the waiting list and not be able to get her.)

Other dolls that have sold out at Charisma but that we still have in limited quantity are: Andelyn Wickedly Cute Tiny Tot - Baby Olive Marie Heirloom Tiny Tot (2 left) - Friendship Rose Butterfly Whisper (a few left) - Please note that we have been told we will not be able to get a future order of these dolls from Charisma as Charisma as sold out their entire edition of each doll.   Therefore we recommend if you want any of these dolls and haven't yet pre-ordered to do so very soon.  We expect sell-outs.

Charisma Brands no longer has a regular Doll Hospital on site, however from time to time they still bring in Margaret for repairs. They don't stock spare parts any more so services would be limited. If you have a service question for Charisma, please try contacting dollhospital@charismabrands.com or call 1-800-779-5335.

Hello friends!  Lots of news to share today!  I apologize for not blogging more at our regular blog.  We will be restarting that again in the near future but for now, look to here for the latest news.

The following dolls are sold out in pre-order at Count Your Beans:  Adora Belle The Roaring 20th - 20th Anniversary Platinum Rose doll with 20th Anniversary Book - My Perfect Pal - We are taking a waiting list for each doll should we have cancellations.  Please note that we have been told we will not be able to get a future order of these dolls from Charisma as Charisma has sold out their entire edition of each doll.  If you are on the waitlist, you may wish to try and reserve a doll elsewhere. (We truly love your business but we'd rather have you get your wish list doll than be on the waiting list and not be able to get her.)

Other dolls that have sold out at Charisma but that we still have in limited quantity are: 20th Anniversary Kissy My Heart - Andelyn Wickedly Cute Tiny Tot - Baby Olive Marie Heirloom Tiny Tot - Friendship Rose Butterfly Whisper - Treats and Treasures Keepsake - Please note that we have been told we will not be able to get a future order of these dolls from Charisma as Charisma as sold out their entire edition of each doll.   Therefore we recommend if you want any of these dolls and haven't yet pre-ordered to do so very soon.  We expect sell-outs on most.

We also have very few left in pre-order for Adora Belle Sasha Steampunk (not shown on QVC) - Casperella (Retail Exclusive) - Love Makes The World Go Round - Happily Ever Laughter - Baby Bubbles - Little Lovey's Closet - Val - We may be able to re-order these. It all depends on Charisma's stock. With so many sell outs of other dolls, it's really hard to tell what will happen. 

Subject to change, we're currently okay in pre-order supply on Baby Bundle Boo - My Beary Special Friend & Marie Sunshine & Happiness (Charisma is low on her but we had pre-ordered a fairly decent amount). 

Adora Belle Sasha Steampunk was not shown on QVC, however we will have her as well as the retail exclusive Halloween doll, Casperella

** Important News ** about Love Makes The World Go Round - We confirmed today with our lovely rep at Charisma that due to an unfortunate factory error, the music box initially placed in the shipment of these dolls was "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling" and not "Love Makes The World Go Round".  Charisma and Count Your Beans are very sorry about this but will make it right!  The good news is that Charisma's factory is working diligently to rework the dolls and make the situation right as soon as possible. As it does take a bit to fix, there will be a delay in retailers getting this doll and shipping to collectors, however it's much better to have the right doll with the right music box shipped together the first time so we definitely appreciate your patience, understanding and support.  Marie sculpted this doll personally and wants it to be just right for collectors.  When we have further information, we'll let you know.  We will contact each pre-order via email personally by the end of the weekend.

We are still expecting the August show dolls minus 20th Anniversary Platinum Rose (ETA Oct) and Love Makes The World Go Round (ETA to be determined) to arrive at Charisma on / around 9/7 and ship shortly thereafter.  We're hoping to have dolls in stock by Monday, September 19th since we're in Washington state and Charisma's warehouse is in Maryland.  Thanks for your patience!

Other dolls coming back into stock or now back in are: It's Been A Hoot Toddler - Silver Lining - The Gift of Love - Little Miss Pink For The Cure - Hydie - We invite you to check out our sales! - We also will be bringing in new Adora dolls for the Fall.  Stay tuned for updates!.

We really appreciate all the pre-orders and support!  This has been a challenging year in a variety of ways and we truly appreciate our collecting friends and customers!  Please note that our rep at Charisma has confirmed that at this point there will be no Adora Belle Holiday 2011 or other Christmas holiday dolls scheduled other than the Harmony What Child is This Tiny Tot and the Peppermint Snowflake announced earlier in the year as Retailer exclusives.

We are happy to say that Marie Osmond announced during her August 26th QVC show that she'd be back on air in January or February of 2012. We look forward to seeing her and being able to supply you with the amazing dolls she and Charisma are sure to have in store for 2012!!

Last Updated 8/6/11

It's great to see new Marie Osmond dolls available again for pre-order! 

Of special note, Casperella (pictured below in 7/26 post) is a Retail Exclusive and will be available through Authorized Dealers.  We recommend early pre-orders. Also quite popular in pre-order and likely to sell out is Adora Belle The Roaring 20th

There is a doll on the cover of Doll Reader Magazine (a French Bru I believe?) that will be a QVC only exclusive for the August 26th show.

As always, Count Your Beans will be offering price matching for any dolls shown on Marie Osmond's August 26th show.   We will automatically adjust pricing and Bonus Beans for anyone who pre-orders so you don't need to wait until the day of the show to know the sale price will be secured.   We also still offer Free UPS Ground S/H in the USA on shipped orders of $75 or greater and partial shipping credits to international customers.

At this time, Charisma has not yet decided to offer the 20th Anniversary Book separately from the Platinum Rose doll.   They may decide to do so in the future but at this time, she is not available for pre-order / purchase separately.  If that changes, we'll be sure to post.

As a reminder, Marie Osmond's next show on QVC will be her 20th Anniversary show and it will be on Friday, August 26th. She will have a live QVC audience so look for Marie Doll Friends in the audience!   The time has been scheduled for 12 NOON - 2 p.m. PST or 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. EST.  We have not heard at this point if she will be having any other QVC doll shows this year.  If that changes, we'll be happy to make an update.

With very few Marie Osmond doll shows in the past couple years, we truly appreciate your support and thoughtfulness in considering to do business with the Count Your Beans family!  We are grateful and blessed to have so many delightful and amazing doll friends.

Last Updated 7/2/11 - HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY WEEKEND!

We received an email on Friday letting us know that pictures and descriptions for the August release Marie Osmond show dolls are expected to be released to retailers one month prior to the show. This puts the date at approximately July 26th.  Most dolls will be limited in edition size. We have already pre-ordered an allocation and as soon as we are given the go-ahead to release additional information, we will place it upon our website. 

We were getting kind of low on Adora Toddler, Baby and Limited Edition dolls so we placed a re-order and expect many toddler and some Limited Edition dolls back into stock around July 15th.  Please see our Adora pages for details. Some dolls are still on back-order with Charisma but we re-ordered the styles that were available.

We are back in town and shipping orders!  Thanks for your patience while we were away! 

While we were away, many asked about when pictures and descriptions of the Marie Osmond August show dolls were to be released officially to retailers from Charisma Brands.  At this time, we have not yet received any new information but we will be happy to post when we do! 

We did read online through twitter that Marie Osmond will be having a 20th anniversary party in Las Vegas in late October. She is touring throughout the summer but is still scheduled to be at QVC on August 26th for her 20th anniversary dolls shows.  We also learned that she and Donny will be entertaining guests on a cruise in early 2012.  Additionally, Marie is due to have an upcoming guest spot (or more?) on the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful.   Busy times!

We look forward to hearing more information about upcoming doll releases that we may pass along to you!  Thanks as always for your support!

Hi everyone! We have a new light blog up at http://www.cybdeals.blogspot.com.   Nothing ground-breaking but there are a couple cute pictures of our kids at Easter time we thought it would be fun to share. (Proud mom & dad brag photos!)  In May we are going to start featuring different dolls on our blog at least a couple times a week so we invite you to check back!  Thanks for all your support! 

Last Updated 4/26/11 (edited on 4/27)

We hope that everyone who celebrated had a lovely Easter weekend.  We spent some great family time with our sons and everyone had a nice holiday.

On Thursday, John and I were able to get a sneak peek at a variety of new dolls announced for retailers to be offered in August.  There are some really great dolls coming!  Marie Osmond's 20th anniversary show on QVC is tentatively scheduled for August 26th according to a tweet from Marie @marieosmond on Twitter. (This did not come from Charisma.)

Sometimes Charisma employees or Marie Osmond share tidbits on Twitter or Facebook and we do feel comfortable passing that information along since it has been made public by an employee of the company. 

(Edit -- Information about the 20th Anniversary Doll has been removed due to some confusion and misunderstanding on our part about what amount and type of new doll information is allowed to be retweeted or shared by retailers before a Marie Osmond doll show. On 4/27, it was requested for the future not to post information about a specific new release doll until that doll is in hand. We're assuming it is okay to still post descriptions if they are released and to take pre-orders.  We thought that it was okay if it had been tweeted or talked about on TV or in social media by Marie or a Charisma employee that we could share or answer questions about that product.  We also had thought it was not breaking any rules to talk in general terms about series or sculptors that were upcoming since this had been allowed in the past.  Charisma would prefer to be the ones to answer any questions about new releases since they have the creative control and things often change before final production. We support Charisma and Marie Osmond and look forward to the information they will be sharing about the upcoming August releases! Thanks so much for your support! end of edit 4/27)

We'd like to share more at this time, however Charisma wants to build up the suspense and has not finalized all the show dolls yet. As soon as we are able to put the doll information on our site for pre-order, we will. Thanks for your patience and we hope that you will enjoy all Marie and Charisma offer for the August show! 

In other Count Your Beans news, we reorganized our Marie Osmond Alphabetical section to combine the B & C pages together. For now we're leaving the other pages as is.

Yesterday, Peggy Charisma and Charisma Brands showed new Marie Osmond dolls on air in Canada on The Shopping Channel.   They had some amazing anniversary prices on the Retail Exclusive Launch dolls that retailers had here in the USA as well as other new Marie Osmond dolls.  If you live in Canada, we hope you were able to take advantage of the dolly deals.

TSC does not ship outside of Canada so what we're doing for our Count Your Beans customers is price matching the TSC price shipped (as if you were buying in Canada and shipping to Canada) and then converting from Canadian dollars to US $.  We compared pricing with the pricing already on our site and made additional adjustments accordingly. Please check our Osmond Pricing Pages for special sales and reductions. Please also see our note below from 4/10 about other price adjustments.

Marie Osmond Love and Laughter Along The Way Toddler and a partial order (about half) of Marie Osmond Pie Jesu Fashion Doll just arrived this afternoon at Count Your Beans. All those who prepaid will have their orders shipped on 4/13.  All those who pre-ordered and have not yet paid will be contacted and invoiced by 4/14.  Thanks so much for your patience in waiting for these dolls to come in. We do have extras of Love and Laughter currently available and once we get the balance of our Pie Jesu dolls we should have a few extra there too.

Adora Doll Costumes have been added to both our Adora Babies page and Adora Toddlers page.  These costumes were made to fit Adora 20" (head to toe) dolls and will fit many other 18" - 20" baby dolls as well.

We will be adding the 18" Adora play dolls in the Forever Friends, Wizard of Oz and Girl Scouts lines to our website shortly.  In the interim, if you're interested in pre-ordering, just drop us a line at countyourbeans@aol.com (John) or cntyrbeans@aol.com (Karen).

Today we noticed that a very large competitor and TV shopping network placed a majority of the Marie Osmond March 2011 dolls on "clearance". Yikes! This happened just a little over a month after Marie's show. Generally, the policy that Charisma Brands outlines is that authorized dealers should not discount a new doll for the first six month after release unless 1) It is a QVC, TSC or other TV shopping price match, 2) It is a Charisma Brands / Paradise Galleries price match, 3) It is a holiday themed doll, 4) Charisma otherwise authorizes the discount (usually by offering their own special pricing through coupons on dolly deal specials).

We were very surprised to see the new pricing so quickly after Marie's show and with some dolls to such a great degree. As a family-owned business and small retailer it definitely impacts us as we purchased stock of inventory at certain levels assuming the market price for the dolls would be at a certain level for the first six months in the marketplace. We want to be fair to our customers, abide by Charisma guidelines, still be competitive in the marketplace and have the chance to make a reasonable profit so we may stay in business. We always want our customers to feel they are being treated fairly and are having a chance at special sales.

After careful consideration, we have decided to match the new QVC "special" (non-show) pricing on almost all items. Bonus Beans have been adjusted accordingly. In a few cases, we took their special and added their shipping to give our price match because a few dolls were priced where it would be at a loss for us otherwise. We are sorry to say that the prices are not retroactive to previous orders or layaways and are for new orders only.

Once we sell out of a specific doll at this special price, we will likely not be re-ordering unless pricepoints to us make it economically feasible to do so. Shipping costs have risen considerably this past year and with shipping to us and the shipping we subsidize on most orders, we're stocking a lower level of inventory on most items. Those who received special promotion coupons may still use them on most website items, however there are a few dolls we are not allowing coupons on including Adora Bea Happy, Elephant Fun, Hydie and Sweet Baby Bridgette due to the level of additional price match discount just given.

We appreciate your support and hope you will be able to take advantage of the new sales!  Thanks!

We are still awaiting a revised ETA for the A Treat For Mom Sweet Celebrations Keepsake and Happy Birthday To You Sweet Celebrations Keepsake. At this point, we are hoping for April and we will post more news as we have it.

Check out our home page today! We changed our background color to blue in support of World Autism Awareness day.  Our family has three on the autism spectrum. We pledge to love and support, to accept and not except, to include and not exclude.  Autism does not define us. We still give great customer service. We are still the same hard-working, caring people we have always been! Thanks for your support and acceptance of our business and our family!

In other news, Charisma should be shipping Marie Osmond Pie Jesu and Love and Laughter Toddler out later this week. We are hoping to have them in hand around April 13th or April 14th and will start sending invoices once we confirm the dolls are physically in transit.

Kewpie Sailor Boy (new for 2011) is currently in transit but the rest of the 2011 Kewpies are still awaiting arrival at Charisma. For those pre-ordered, we appreciate your patience and hope to have these dolls in stock in April. If that changes, we'll update as we have more news.

The Adora Toddler and Adora Babies dolls from the Name Your Own Baby collection are selling well for us and if you haven't added one of these cute vinyl dolls to your collection or given one as a gift, they're well made, adorable and quite a value, especially with our Free S/H on shipped continental USA orders over $75!

We will be adding the Adora Forever Friends Play Dolls, Adora Girl Scouts Dolls & Adora Wizard of Oz Dolls to our website in the near future. Time has been a premium here lately and we appreciate your patience. If you would like more information or would like to pre-order, you may still do so by emailing John or Karen at countyourbeans@aol.com.

The Artista doll lines and Whispering Willow Fairy lines have been retired, although it's possible in the future, new items may come out under Charisma's Paradise Galleries brand.  We currently are having close-out specials on Artista and Whispering Willow in case you're looking for cute vinyl baby dolls, fairies or fantasy figurines.

I apologize for not blogging lately but I will be blogging more in April.  We're going to start some new promotions on our blog to showcase the different dolls that we carry and that means specials for our loyal visitors.   Watch for more information soon!

Collectors are starting to receive their Marie Osmond March show dolls and the review are coming back positive!  Marie and Charisma listened to your requests for more porcelain and the vast majority of the new group of toddlers does have more porcelain in the arms and legs than on average in the past couple of years.

A particularly substantial toddler doll is Hydie who is dressed in ovely in shades of purple and was a special Collector's Choice production.

Occasionally there are changes in final production photos and one change we wanted to bring up was with Elephant Fun. The childlike face on this cutie is just precious. Ping Lau did a great job sculpting her. In final production, Charisma changed from red Mary Jane shoes with white socks to blue slippers which match her dress. We do not have a revised photo but have made notes on our ordering page.  Although Charisma does say when releasing stock photos that details are subject to change in final production, we apologize for any confusion. We try to post changes as we know of them.

Early first run sell-outs at CYB were It's Been A Hoot, Adora Belle My Angel, Adora Belle Bea Happy, Little Lovey, Elephant Fun, Cute As A Button, Sweet Baby Bridgette, Wish Upon A Starfish Mermaid Tiny Tot and When Irish Eyes are Smiling. We have already re-ordered and received second shipments of all of the above except Little Lovey, Wish Upon A Starfish Mermaid Tiny Tot & When Irish Eyes Are Smiling which are due back in within 7 - 14 days.

We still do not have stock photos from Charisma for any of the 4 Harmony Tiny Tot dolls, Pie Jesu or Love and Laughter Along The Way Toddler.  We have asked on multiple occasions but were told that Charisma has been having problems with their server and being able to add photos to the B2B (Business to Business) website. As the Marie Osmond Harmony Let Me Call You Sweetheart Tiny Tot should be arriving to us before the end of the month, we will take a picture of her when she comes in. We don't have the Pie Jesu or Love and Laughter Toddlers yet since they have first 4 week holds with Charisma but as soon as we have a picture (stock photo or actual) to share, we will.  We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

There are a number of people we contacted for pre-orders who have not yet responded. We are willing to continue holding your dolls for a limited time but please do contact us so we know you still want your order. If you pre-ordered and have not heard from us, please check both your spam folder and your PayPal account and if you do not see a message from us, please contact Karen at cntyrbeans@aol.com or John at countyourbeans@aol.com. Also, if you need to update your phone number, email address or credit card on file, please contact us as well.  We want to stay in touch!

Have you seen all the new Adora Babies and Adora Toddler dolls for 2011? Lots of amazing choices.  Such cute sculpts... and the clothes among all the 20" dolls can be interchanged.  Reasonable pricing, great gift ideas.  Please see our Adora Dolls section for details!

Did you get the chance to catch Marie on QVC on March 7th?  According to Charisma, this was Marie's best show for selling dolls in the last couple of years. Being that 2011 is her 20th Anniversary of producing dolls, the dolls this year so far have been very popular.  We have stock right now of almost all the show dolls with more inventory arriving next week.

Amaya Celebrations, Delilah Daisies, Duck, Duck Goose and Harmony Let Me Call You Sweetheart Tiny Tot are supposed to be arriving to Charisma this week and shipping shortly thereafter.  We hope to have them in stock in 1 - 2 weeks. Adora Bitty Belle dolls Lively Lucy and Paris Posh and Patti Princess are supposed to arrive to Charisma around 3/15 and we hope to have them in stock at Count Your Beans in about 2 weeks  There is currently no ETA for the A Treat for Mom Keepsake and Happy Birthday Keepsake.   Charisma is hoping at this point for late March, early April.

Both Pie Jesu and Love and Laughter Along The Way Toddler have first 4 week holds with QVC and should start shipping to retailers around April 7th.  We're hoping to have both in stock in mid April.

We appreciate your patience as we work to catch up on inventory, invoices, pre-orders and orders.  We should have already contacted everyone who pre-ordered any of the in-stock dolls.  If you didn't receive an email or PayPal invoice, please check your spam folders and PayPal account and then if you still don't see anything, please email Karen at cntyrbeans@aol.com or John at countyourbeans@aol.com. We want to do our best to take good care of you!

A note about the new 2011 dolls.  There are new Certificates of Authenticity and new hang tags. There is not a Marie Osmond doll necklace or bracelet included with dolls this year unless it is jewelry specific to that doll.

Marie Osmond's next show on QVC should be in August 2011.  There will be some dolls coming in before then such as Harmony Good Old Summertime Tiny Tot (June), Adora Ramona Royale Bitty Belle (June) and Adora Lottie Love Bitty Belle (June).  There may be others as well.  We will post more news as we learn it!

Charisma expects many of their March show dolls to sell out at the manufacturer. We're trying to order this year close to collector demand so we don't carry a lot of excess inventory so if there is a particular doll you're looking at but haven't ordered and her edition size is low, please keep that in mind as we don't want you to have to miss out on a special wish list doll.  Thanks!

Last Updated 3/7/11

LOTS of March Marie Osmond & Adora Dolls just arrived! After we finish our shipping for the day, we will start doing inventory of the new product and this evening we will start sending out PayPal invoices to those who pre-ordered in the order in which your order was placed.  If you pre-ordered, please allow us approximately 24 - 48 hours to contact you, thanks! Also as this is one of our busier weeks of the year, please allow us approximately 24 hours response for emails, thank you!   We truly appreciate your support and want to do our best to take care of you and all our doll collecting friends!

We have updated our website with QVC Price Matches, hooray!  Marie's 2nd show is today from 11:00 a.m. - NOON PST!  We're expecting lots of great dolls to be on the line-up.  Please read our 3/6 blog if you haven't already!

We have already placed a re-order on popular dolls, so if our first shipment dolls sells out, we are expecting a re-order shipment to arrive around 3/16.

Thanks! Karen & John

Well, doll fans, we at Count Your Beans are EXCITED to say that many of the new Marie Osmond 2011 March dolls are currently in transit to us now from Charisma.  Not all dolls have arrived yet at Charisma and some allocations are being broken up into multiple shipments. We've been told they are expecting many containers arriving back-to-back this month and so if you don't see a doll on the March 7th list, it shouldn't be too far behind.  

Our first shipment of the following dolls are expected to arrive physically at Count Your Beans on Monday, March 7th.  Some of these doll quantities are in split shipment and the second shipment should arrive about a week later.

If you click on the doll's name, it will take you to our ordering page for that doll.

We will be offering QVC price matching for Marie Osmond dolls placed on special during these two shows. I will update the website as quickly as I can to reflect this. Please know that if you have pre-ordered a doll with us already and the price is lower when shown on QVC, we will automatically go ahead and do the price match. Please note that with price matches, the Bonus Beans we offer are adjusted as well.  We also have discretion on if we will match the QVC total price with shipping or the QVC price without shipping.  Generally we match the QVC price without shipping but if the discount is too substantial for it to be profitable for us, we will match their price with shipping included.

Hi Count Your Beans doll friends!  We haven't had much new news to report lately with Charisma Brands but we're hoping that will change very soon. Marie Osmond will be showing many of her March 2011 line of dolls on QVC on Sunday, March 6th from 10 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. PST and Monday, March 7th from 11:00 a.m. to Noon PST.

We will be offering QVC price matching for Marie Osmond dolls placed on special during these two shows. I will update the website as quickly as I can to reflect this. Please know that if you have pre-ordered a doll with us already and the price is lower when shown on QVC, we will automatically go ahead and do the price match.

The great dolly deals are with Count Your Beans as we are happy to meet or beat their price on new dolls shown on show day.  If you have any questions, please let us know and we'll be happy to help.

** Adora - Many containers of new dolls are expected to arrive to Charisma in March.  We are expecting many of the new Adora Babies and Toddlers to arrive at that time.  More specific times aren't available right now but we'll post more information as it becomes available.

** Marie Osmond March dolls - We've been told that many have arrived at Charisma and should start shipping to retailers this week (excluding QVC first 4 week hold dolls Marie Osmond Pie Jesu and Love and Laughter Along The Way Toddler).  As Charisma ships from Maryland and we're in Washington, we are hoping to get our first shipment of dolls in stock by the middle of next week.  It is expected that shipments are staggered but those who pre-ordered with us will have their dolls allocated first. 

We expect sales to come in on show day and the few days afterwards. If we sell out of our pre-ordered dolls, we will place a re-order with Charisma.  If interested in any of the popular lower edition dolls or DOTY Award winning dolls, we recommend pre-ordering early or on the day of the show if possible.  Some of our first expected shipments are almost sold out in pre-order. As it's been awhile since Marie has been on QVC and pre-orders are coming in at a different rate than previously, we are being cautious with our ordering numbers.  We really hope to earn your business and if you have any questions, please let us know!

Peggy Vicioso from Charisma Brands is showing Marie Osmond dolls today on The Shopping Channel in Canada!   If any of the new 2011 show dolls are shown we are willing to price match as long as their sale price is above our cost.  We are really looking forward to Marie Osmond being on QVC on Monday, March 7th.  Many of the new releases are doing very well in pre-order including:

Amaya Celebrations (LE 150), Adora Belle Bea Happy Mop Top and It's Been A Hoot (DOTY Winner 2011) are very popular in Pre-Order!

We placed our initial pre-orders for the March show releases in January. Should any items sell out in pre-order, we will order more. If they don't sell out, we'll wait until show day and gauge interest at that time for additional orders.  We are dedicated to carrying a full line of Marie Osmond dolls to service your needs and look forward to earning your business and repeat support.  

Do you have interest in 18" Vinyl Girl Scout dolls from Adora (for style, think American Girl or Magic Attic)?   We will be carrying this line in the near future as well. Some of the new Adora Babies & Toddlers for 2011 have already arrived.  We invite you to check our Adora Dolls section for details.

Pictures for these dolls were released by Charisma because these dolls are not scheduled to be on the March Marie Osmond QVC show.  They also put up information on the Charisma site for the 4 Harmony Tiny Tots - Let Me Call You Sweetheart, What Child Is This, Twinkle Twinkle and Good Old Summertime as these will also be retail exclusive launches, however the pictures at Charisma show the toddlers and not the tiny tots so please keep this in mind when pre-ordering as the dolls do look different in miniaturized form. There was also a large photo of Adora Kristi Krinkle for the Bitty Belle so we're waiting her her final picture as well.

We appreciate your patience and support and are gladly accepting pre-orders now.  Please note that some of these dolls listed above are scheduled for release later in the year.  We have given the current estimated month of arrival on each pre-ordering page.

** The following dolls will also be Retail Exclusives so we hope to get pictures soon:  Amaya Celebrations by Sonja Bryer - Duck, Duck Goose by Beverly Stoehr - Delilah Daisies by JoAnn Pohlman. When Irish Eyes Are Smiling may also be a Retail Launch.  Retailers will be getting her.

** The only 4 week hold dolls on the QVC show that we were told about were Pie Jesu Fashion Doll and Love and Laughter Along The Way Toddler.  All the other March show dolls we should be getting pictures for around February 7th, a month before Marie's March 7th QVC shows.

Last Updated 1/11/11

** We received a follow up email from our rep at Charisma saying that the doll pictures for the Marie Osmond doll show on QVC March 7th would not be released until one month before the show or approximately February 7th.  Since the show was pushed back to March 7th, that means that the retailer supply of show dolls should start shipping approximately 10 days before show day if all works out okay with timing that the warehouse receiving the dolls.

QVC first 4 week hold dolls Pie Jesu and Love and Laughter Along the Way Toddler won't have their pictures released until around March 7th, show day. Pie Jesu and Love and Laughter Along the Way have a first 4 week hold with QVC so they should start shipping to retailers at the end of March, early April.

There will be some dolls that are considered Retail Exclusive launches that will not be shown on Marie's March QVC show that we should get official images and descriptions for later this week.   Charisma is have some IT issues right now and so this information has been temporarily delayed. We appreciate your patience and support and will publish more information as soon as we have it.

** We were able to see part of a Marie Osmond dolls presentation online at the B2B site. The presentation will be posted in full to us and other retailers later. For now, the information we learned that was new was added to the description pages on our website. 

For example, we learned the sculptor names for Journey - Karen Alderson and Little Lovey - Lorella Falconi. Both sculptors are award-winners and well-respected within the doll industry. Journey has been submitted for judging in this year's DOTY award competition.

To learn more about Lorella Falconi, visit: http://www.lorettafalconi.com

To learn more about Karen Alderson, visit: http://www.karensdolls.com

** Love and Laughter Along the Way, Marie's theme for 2011 and theme toddler doll will be Musical and sculpted by JoAnn Pohlman. It WILL play "May Tomorrow Be A Perfect Day".  This was the closing song on Donny & Marie's variety show.  "May tomorrow be a perfect day... may there be love and laughter along the way..."

** New Kewpie, Penny Brite and the balance of the Adora pictures should hopefully be available to us soon. Most of the new Adora 2011 pictures are already up on our website and there are a LOT of amazing quality cuties in the bunch!

Last Updated 1/8/11

** CHANGE IN DATE ** Marie Osmond will be back on QVC debuting her first selection from her 20th Anniversary of dolls on Monday, March 7th. The original date proposed was February 14th but last night Charisma updated their website to reflect a new show day of March 7th.

** We received an email from Charisma saying that pictures were going to be released to retailers via Charisma's business to business site this weekend. We weren't sure if the show being pushed back until March 7th would have an impact on the date of the release of the pictures.   Hopefully not!  We will post them when we have them!

** We did just post 6 new Adora Babies Dolls photos and pictures for 23 of the new 25 Adora Toddler Dolls for 2011.  These vinyl 20" baby dolls are amazing quality with darling costumes and are so cute!

** We also added 21 Limited Edition Adora dolls with pictures and descriptions to our website for pre-order.  These are the intricately designed collectible dolls with costumes from around the world.  We invite you to check out the detail that goes into these dolls!

Hi Everyone!  We will be making even greater use of the Count Your Beans blog in 2011.  We've already posted three blogs.  We invite you to come follow us at http://www.cybdeals.blogspot.com for up-to-date news.  I'll continue to do little blurbs here but the extended / meaty stuff will be on the blog.  Thanks!

** Marie will be having a doll signing at Disneyland on January 15th and will be introducing two new Disney dolls.   Unfortunately these are exclusive to Disney, so Count Your Beans won't have them but we will be stocking the 38 new dolls just announced at the end of last year.

** Our rep at Charisma said that they are hoping to release official pictures and descriptions for many of the new 2011 dolls later this week.  We are eagerly awaiting Charisma's post on their website and will add the dolls after we have the information and go-ahead!

** Adora Fan? Two new Adora doll lines this year:  Adora Girl Scout Dolls coming in March and Adora Playtime Dolls (12 months and up) being introduced in late January! See our blog posts from January 4th for details!

** We added 6 New Adora Babies & 25 New Adora Toddlers for 1st Quarter 2011 for pre-order at Count Your Beans!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! If you haven't checked out our 12/30 blog, we invite you to do so at http://www.cybdeals.blogspot.com.

Special note regarding Keepsakes announced for 2011: The Keepsake face sculpt for the Sweet Celebrations Keepsake Series and Love & Laughter Along the Way Keepsakes is the old style Keepsake face sculpt that Marie Osmond and Charisma offered prior to 2010.  This style seemed to be favored my most collectors.  Hope this helps!

Additional Note:  The 38 Marie Osmond dolls listed are NOT all the new dolls for 2011.  They consist of the February show dolls and a lot of the smaller series dolls they may / may not be retail exclusive launches.  Marie will still be doing additional shows throughout the year and there will be additional larger doll sculpts announced as it comes closer to each show date.

Incoming Stock to Count Your Beans & answers to your questions about doll shipping!

On our alphabetical pages, we give an estimated time for new product to arrive at Count Your Beans.  These estimates are provided to us by Charisma Brands and therefore are subject to change at any time. 

We know how frustrating it can be to be excited about a doll and then find out it is delayed or comes in very early.   Unfortunately, estimated times of arrival are just estimates and delays or allocation changes are generally beyond our control.  For the most recent information on ETA updates, allocations or description changes, please read our regular news updates in our "Charisma Brands Tidbits" section above. 

Depending on demand and allocation, we may receive multiple shipments for the same item so if something has recently arrived and sold out, we will also indicate approximately when the next shipment is expected to arrive if we have an official ETA from the manufacturer.

As we've received some very common questions many times in the past few months related to shipping/allocation, I thought I'd post the questions and answers here so that everyone could see:

Why is it that some retailers receive their dolls faster than others?   Does Charisma have a Priority Ship program?

There are many reasons why one retailer may receive a doll faster than another.  One reason is obviously geographic location.  Charisma Brands is located in Southern California and ships some dolls from Southern CA and some from a warehouse in Maryland. 

As far as Count Your Beans shipments are concerned, we are zoned in a residential district in Vancouver, WA . Shipments from Charisma in Southern CA usually arrive at Count Your Beans in 3 - 4 business days from the time Charisma ships.  Shipments from their East Coast Distribution Center (older merchandise) usually arrive in 5 - 6 business days (7 - 8 calendar days) from the time Charisma ships. In the big scope of things, a few days wait doesn't usually matter much to most customers but when one is excited about getting a new dolly, we understand everyone would like her as soon as possible!  As such, once we get the dolls in, we do our best to turn them back around as soon as we can, usually within 2 business days after payment receipt.

Larger retailers such as Count Your Beans often do have a "Priority Ship" status with Charisma Brands.   This means that we're one of the first shops to have our orders processed but as Charisma Brands has quite a few customers and not everyone can be first, we've noticed that "first shipment" tends to rotate among the shops.  This helps even the playing field.  The date that a retailer places an initial order will also have a big effect as well.  For example if we ordered 25 Happy Dolly dolls on 2/9 to ship in August and then pre-sold all of those and ordered another 25 more on 6/15 for August delivery, our second 25 might not ship with the first grouping.  Whether that second 25 arrives in Charisma's first or second allocation depends on how many dolls they have coming in, how many they've presold and how many are already allocated.

What does allocation mean?  How does Charisma Brands allocate?

In layman's terms, allocation means to distribute according to a plan or to set apart and designate for a specific purpose. 

In relation to Marie Osmond dolls, allocation comes into play during different occasions.  For example, if there is a specific doll that is extremely popular but has a limited edition size (i.e. 150), in order to be fair to all retailers, each retailer will have the opportunity to order and receive an allocation of a minimum or maximum # of dolls.  Sometimes that maximum number is pre-determined, such as is the case with Catherine Elizabeth, sometimes it is dependent on demand.

More typically though, allocation takes place when dolls arrive at Charisma Brands in split shipments. For example, say 300 "Happy Dolly" dolls arrive at Charisma Brands in their first shipment and 800 are due three weeks later.  All 1100 of their dolls are pre-sold.   Who gets the first 300?

(Method A) Well, in order to be fair and give every retailer a chance to get some of this hot new doll, Charisma may just ship a few "Happy Dolly" dolls out in their first shipment to each shop based on a percentage allocation system.  For example, they may ship 10% of each shop's order in the first allocation and 90% in the second allocation. 

(Method B) Alternatively, they may choose to ship all the small orders first and the bigger orders second as this saves on shipping and is faster to pack. 

Is this always the case?   In our experience, no.  (Method C) Sometimes the shipments are sent out strictly on a first ordered, first served basis. This means if Shop A ordered 200 "Happy Dolls" and they were the first to order, they might get all 200 before some shops ordering later get any. 

Usually it seems that the New Release dolls and very limited edition dolls are sent out in a combination of Method A and Method B.  Occasionally C is implemented but it's usually in combination with Method A and/or B. 

Allocation is more strictly used on first runs of a new release doll and on dolls with smaller edition sizes.  Dolls that have open editions can often be ordered for later runs without allocation issues.   For dolls without restrictions, it's generally a first come, first served method.

To be honest, we've noticed over the years a number of different methods that Charisma Brands has used for allocation so our examples are not meant to serve as a guarantee of how they currently allocate or will allocate in the future.  I know the above may seem a bit confusing and we do apologize. It is confusing! Luckily, most of this usually is not an issue for most customers as the turnaround and receipt for most new dolls is fairly quick.

As a general rule, please note that when a manufacturer such as Charisma Brands gives an ETA to retailers, it usually tentative and subject to change.  Guarantees of ship dates to retailers are sometimes unrealistic due to unforseen circumstances so patience and understanding while waiting for shipments to arrive is always sincerely appreciated!  The bottom line is we appreciate your business and want to get your dolls out to you as soon as possible and if they've arrived at Count Your Beans, we will post on our website and let you know as soon as we can, usually within 48 hours of receipt.

What does it mean when you are receiving a doll in split shipments?

Please note when you see notes about a "split shipment" that means that we are receiving a partial supply of our initial order.  When split shipments are received, we fill orders first by looking at the dates that each customer has ordered their doll and placed their initial deposit.   After we find out how many actual dolls of each style we have physically gotten in, we will contact everyone on our pre-order list to let them know if their doll is in the first shipment or will be in the second shipment. 

When dolls are received in split shipments, orders that have already been requested to be on layaway will automatically be allocated to the 2nd or later shipment unless you have indicated to us otherwise that you wanted to pay off your layaway early.

Why don't you email me every time there is an ETA change for my doll?

We want to service all of our customers in the best way possible.  Information about ETAs will often change from week to week, even day by day. For one recent August release doll where there were allocation issues, there were 4 different ETA changes in the same week.  The feedback we have received is that the most timely way to guarantee that everyone has access to current information is to post it on our website news page.  For those that would like frequent email updates.We will soon be adding an opt-in newsletter to our website.

Thanks! We hope this information helps!

Customer Service / Email Issues

We are a family business dedicated to providing friendly customer service and treating each collector as a friend.   It's just the two of us (Karen and John) and we do our best to answer all emails in a timely manner. We are happy to say that in most cases when we are in town, we are able to answer business emails within 1 - 2 business days of receipt (Monday - Friday, but we're often working on Saturday & Sunday too, so don't be surprised if you hear from us these days). Naturally, we want to get back to you as quickly as we can and try to answer letters in the order received in order to be fair to everyone.

That being said, if you have a Priority / Urgent / Emergency Issue, we want to help you!  If you could please note "Priority" or "Urgent" issue in the subject header of your letter, this will make us aware to check your email and service you more quickly.   If you need to reach Karen about an auction, email cntyrbeans@aol.com and if you need to reach John about a website order, email countyourbeans@aol.com.  

Frequently Asked Questions:

I wrote to you but never heard back  OR

My email to you bounced back.  What do I do?

First, we are so sorry to hear about this!  We naturally don't want anyone to feel that they're not being respected or responded to.  Let's make this right!

We know this is obvious, but please double-check that you wrote to the right email address, either countyourbeans@aol.com or cntyrbeans@aol.com. Our email addresses are easy to transpose or misspell and each week we receive quite a few forwarded emails that were originally sent to an invalid address.

Email address correct?   Unfortunately, there are sometimes reasons beyond our control or knowledge which will cause an email to bounce to an AOL server.  The good news is we know it isn't a personal thing because this happens to many AOL users.  The bad news is that it feels personal, especially if you're the one not being personally responded to.  If you have sent a general email and haven't heard from us within 2 business days or you need a quicker response, please forward a copy of your original email to BOTH cntyrbeans@aol.com and countyourbeans@aol.com with the subject header:   Email Follow-Up.  This will let us know there might be an email receipt issue.  Sending a copy of the original email will allow us to try and trace your previous email if we don't show having received it and will allow us to let our service provider know if applicable that there is an issue.

If you have received a bounce back notice (Mailer Daemon Error) and your addressing was correct, chances are there is a temporary server error and if you try your email within a few hours, it will be corrected.

There is also another possibility.  You may have written to us and we received your email but when we wrote back to you, you never received the response.   With most ISPs aggressively fighting SPAM nowadays, email filters for many ISPs are often set on the highest security setting.  Unknown emails will often be diverted or deleted.  If you are having a problem hearing from us, please make sure to add our email addresses to your "address book" or approved email list to make sure our regular emails get through to your in-box.  Please also check your spam / bulk / junk email folders to see if our responses were directed there.  ISPs which we and other AOL users have often heard that emails are diverted to spam folders include: hotmail.com, msn.com, earthlink.net, cox.net, yahoo.com, business and .gov websites and many free providers.

Also, if you are paying for a website or auction order via PayPal and your PayPal address is NOT your current email address, please let us know where to write so we have a way to verify your payment receipt.

In closing, we want you to feel you're taken care of so if you don't hear from us, please give us the benefit of the doubt and try the methods above.  We enjoy working with our customers and hope that you will never experience this problem but if you do, that you'll know it is definitely not personal and we'll try to correct it as soon as we're made aware of the issue.

Thank You!

BONUS BEANS (Amended 7/21/13)

*** Due to Count Your Beans only operating part-time, as of July 1st, 2013, we no longer offer Bonus Beans for purchases. Customers who have unexpired Bonus Beans codes can still redeem them for store credit or partial credit. Please email John at countyourbeans@aol.com if you have any questions. ***

PRE-ORDERS (Amended 7/21/13)

If an item is not in stock at the present time, we are happy to take a pre-order or special reservation for your doll.  All we require is a $10 deposit per doll.

Should you change your mind about a pre-order, we are happy to give you the option to transfer your full deposit fund to another doll within 3 days of your cancellation.

If your pre-order is for an item between $15 and $99 and you cancel completely with no replacement website purchases within 3 days of your cancellation, we do assess a $5 administrative fee per doll cancelled.   If it is over $100 and you cancel your pre-order completely with no replacement website purchases within 3 days of your cancellation, the administrative fee is $10 per doll cancelled.  Any remaining funds (if applicable) will be placed on store credit with Count Your Beans.

Please note that in order to keep our pricing competitive, we only issue Count Your Beans store credit for pre-order cancellations. There are no cash refunds.

Since we are obligated to keep the commitment to the manufacturer for the items we pre-order and have to inventory or find a new buyer for pre-ordered merchandise that customers cancel, we hope you'll respect and understand our policies.  We do our best to keep our overhead low so that we can offer you great pricing and a wide variety of products. Thank you!

LAYAWAY (Amended 7/21/13)

*** As of July 2013, we no longer offer layaway for doll purchases. We apologize for the inconvenience. ***

SHIPPING DATES / RATES (Amended 7/21/13)

We offer FREE UPS Ground/Insured delivery in the continental USA on all website orders of $75 or greater.  In order to qualify for Free S/H, your order must be $75 or greater and $75 or more worth of merchandise must ship at one time.  You may combine Marie Osmond Doll orders with other purchases from our website in order to meet the $75 threshold. If you wish to ship UPS 2 or 3 day Select, USPS Express, USPS Priority/Insured, USPS Parcel Post or you live outside the continental USA, we will offer a partial shipping credit towards shipping fees. Please inquire for rates.

If your shipped order is less than $75 and you live within the continental USA, your shipping rate will be:

$9.50 for orders up to $44.99

$11.50 for orders from $45.00 - $59.99 ** (except tiny tots or orders under 2 lbs will be assessed at $9.50)

$14 for orders from $60 - $74.99. 

Orders under 2 lbs are usually shipped via USPS and orders over 2 lbs are shipped via UPS delivery.   Please note that the shopping cart system calculates S/H based on UPS Grd/Ins S/H in continental USA. If you will be shipping via the United States Postal Service either inside or outside of the USA or will be using expedited shipping methods, shipping rates will be different and we will send an invoice for the difference. 

Generally orders are shipped Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays except during certain times of the year when we may be out of town or closed for a holiday.  During the busy holiday season, we will often add additional shipping days to help expedite orders. If your order is in stock, we do our best to ship all orders the first business shipping day after payment clearance, however during especially busy times, please allow up to 3 business days for shipment. If your order is a rush delivery, please let us know at the time of payment so that we may do our best to accommodate you.

RETURNS (Amended 7/21/13)

Damaged Merchandise: We do our best to package your items carefully, however if breakage or damage occurs, we do insure your package.  Please note that if merchandise arrives damaged in transit, an insurance claim must be filed in order to receive a replacement or refund and all original packaging material must be kept in order to make sure the claim is valid.   If shipment was made through UPS (most domestic shipments), we will file the claim on your behalf upon notification from you but if shipment was made through USPS, the post office will most likely require you to file the claim at your local post office.  If your order was shipped via UPS, the United Parcel Service requests that you hold your merchandise and packaging material up to 10 business days after the filing of the claim as they may need to come out and visually inspect the damage or pick up the merchandise and original packaging.

Please do NOT return merchandise damaged in transit to Count Your Beans or it will invalidate your insurance claim with the carrier and we will not be able to reimburse you for the damage.  All damage claims must be reported to countyourbeans@aol.com within 3 business days of receiving the merchandise.

Defective Merchandise: Please note that if merchandise or a merchandise accessory arrives with a manufacturer defect and the damage did not occur in transit, we will work with you to replace your defective item, issue a credit or refund your purchase price including shipping. We must know about the problem within 3 business days of receiving the merchandise. Please email countyourbeans@aol.com.

Merchandise you have changed your mind about:  We hope that you are pleased with your purchase but should you receive your item and decide it's not for you, we will accept a return if you notify us at countyourbeans@aol.com within 7 days of receiving your item. Please explain why you are unhappy and ask for an RMA number that you can write on the outside of your shipping box.  Please note that if you return an item to Count Your Beans without an RMA number or approval, this will delay and potentially invalidate your refund / return.

If your item is still in the box in mint shape, never removed, we will issue a store credit minus actual shipping costs if we paid to ship your order to you. You are responsible for return insured shipping to us. If your item has been removed from the box but is still mint, we will issue store credit for the amount of the purchase minus actual shipping costs if we paid to ship your order to you.   If your item is no longer in mint condition or you have had your item for longer than 7 days, we unfortunately cannot accept a return. 

Order returns over $100 where another item of equal value is not purchased within 5 days of the return will also be assessed a 15% restocking fee.  Please note that in order to keep our prices competitive, we only issue store credit for returns. There are no cash refunds. (As we do our best to keep our overhead low so that we can offer you great pricing and a wide variety of products, we hope you'll understand.)

For further policy questions, please email us at countyourbeans@aol.com.
